Takisawa machines available from stock

Now available from stock from TW Ward CNC Machinery (Ward CNC) is the Takisawa TT1100GC twin-spindle turning centre and the single-spindle TCC1100GA.

The Takisawa TT1100GC is a gantry-loaded turning cell with an in-built component stocking system for the lights-out machining of precision small parts. With both spindles mounted on a single-piece rigid bed casting, this machine incorporates precision hardened and ground box slideways and a high-speed servo turret.

Emphasising the speed of this machine is the ultra-fast loading and unloading of parts. Capable of loading components in 1.7 seconds, the loader is positioned at the front of the machining chamber to reduce the loading distance, while the movement of the spindle forward to the loading position further reduces component transition times.

Takisawa’s load/unload system works in tandem with a supply and discharge station that is integrated into the machine envelope to minimise footprint. The station is configurable as a three-guide bar type or a centre-pole type station with the part gripper available as a parallel or swivel type hand. In addition, the machine incorporates a peripheral modular unit that presents a measuring unit, washing unit, part positioning via camera, phase determining unit and a turnover transfer unit.

Also available from stock is the TCC1100GA. With a footprint of just 1.8 x 2 m and a high-speed loader, the TCC1100GA is a 6-inch chucking machine offering a maximum turning diameter of 220 mm and a turning length up to 171 mm with a bar capacity of 42 mm diameter. This single-spindle, single-turret turning centre has the choice of an eight-tool turret as standard, or an optional 12-tool station.
